U.S. cable network TLC has commissioned 90 Day Fiance, a series about international romance, which it will premiere on January 12.

90 Day Fiance will capture the language barriers, culture shock and skeptical friends and family as the foreign brides-to-be and their potential husbands find out whether or not they should marry.
Couples included in the series include Californian Alan and Brazilian Kirlyam, Louis from Illinois who met Aya from the Philippines online, Mike from Ohio and Aziza from Russia who met on an international language learning website, and Russ from Oklahoma and Paola from Columbia.
An additional couple will be featured on TLC.com: Len from Arizona and Alina from Ukraine.
